Chris Johanson’s sixth annual Quiet Music Festival of Portland at Disjecta will once again transform the contemporary art space into a tranquil cave of sonic serenity. Tuning in and zonking out are equally encouraged as this year’s line-up takes you through soft sets tailored to the festival’s ethos while you float on a sea of plush surfaces. Sponsored by RVCA | www.rvca.com

Celebrating the power of turning the dial down, the lowest-key festival in the land spans two nights:

Friday, June 24th
Peg Simone and Mary Gaitskill
Juan Wauters
Larry Yes, with Nate Lumbard
Michael Hurley

Saturday, June 25th
Fred and Toody
Virginia Dare
Like Avillan with Christopher Johnedis

Mississippi Records’ Eric returns to helm the festival’s DJ booth and spin copious amounts of medicinal vinyl. The festival will be recorded by Seth Lorinczi (2-Track Mind Studio) using a vintage 2-track 1/4” tape deck. Past recordings can be found at quietmusicfestivalofportland.bandcamp.com. The technology is old, clunky and obsolete, but the recordings capture the special hush and tranquility of the QMF.
